NEW ARTISTS ON O-BOMA (article first published : 2008-01-31)

Hot new artists take the spotlight on next week’s O-Boma on M-Net. O-Boma – where Africa meets is broadcast Monday to Fridays at 15h00.

First up on February 4 is Zeus, an artist from Botswana who is making waves with his particular brand of hip-hop, fused with traditional sounds as heard on his album Freshly Baked. KB will grill this hotshot talent on his track, Imagination with fellow Botswana artist Stagga as well as his plans for 2008. O-Boma viewers can also catch up with 11-year-old child prodigy, In-Cha who is already a proficient violin player.

The Grammy Awards are just around the corner – and with the Writer’s Guild of America giving it the go-ahead, the excitement around the February 10 ceremony is building. February 5 sees Chuma press play on the hype surrounding this year’s event, which may just see Kanye West get his dues.

Nonhle is the host of Wednesday’s O-Boma on February 6 and she’s hanging out with Afro Soul artist, Camagwini who will talk about her debut album Zivile. Described as featuring a range of influences including soul, afro-jazz, Maskandi, Xhosa traditional and even Indian Bangra Music, the album is produced by award-winner, Malambule and was released by Johannesburg-based record company, Native Rhythms.

On February 7, Nzinga hosts another Native Rhythms asset in Musa Mashiane. They will talk about his latest album, The Chant (uMhlabelelo) which includes the hit single Ntombazani.

On Friday, Lungsta again plays host to the now famous O-Sessions which sees two local MCs going head to head in search of approval from O-Boma’s viewers who decide by SMS who is whack and who is killing it.

Viewers should not forget that O-Boma is looking for a couple who have met through O-Boma’s social networking platform (accessed through www.channelo.co.za). Couples who fit the bill should keep watching O-Boma for details of how to win a date-of-a-lifetime that will be documented on O-Boma’s Valentine edition – giving their lovelife a real boost from day one.

Viewers in SA SMS to 34080 (SMS cost R2). Viewers in Nigeria SMS to 33353 (SMS cost N50). Viewers in Rest of Africa SMS to +2783 920 8401 (SMS cost Standard International Rates). Viewers with access to the Channel O website can send messages for free.
